Really old honeycomb, fresh lemon zest. Pineapple ghosts. Haunting. Buy this.

Vintage 1998 / apricot, excellent balance, lively / a treat to taste, we tried it next to crème brulee (very good) and foie gras (absolute perfection)

A “thank you” from Steve of Arnyca after dinner. Holy smokes, this was like drinking liquid honey. So much texture and weight. Honeyed almond, dried apricot, and molasses. My first D’Yquem. Hope to find an ‘88 for my 30th later this year.

What can be said about d'Yquem can only be expressed in poetry, even in a modest vintage like 1998. It is an inner sanctum, a fragrant garden, a poignant release that is both profound and glorious. Descriptors cannot do it justice, sensual and honey-drenched layers of apricots, vanilla bean, creme brûlée and almond pastry. Viscous and glycerol-laden in the mouth, offset by dazzling acidity, dried fruit—quince, more apricots. A silken, pure, honey-spun web of delight. I'm rambling, but d'Yquem does that.
